Some of the biggest names in the music biz have made their way to Sweetwater Studios and played and produced with Don, Nick, Phil, Dave and Mark. But in just as many cases, the artist is an amateur hoping to cut a song or an album. And oftentimes the song they bring to the band doesn’t consist of much more than a tune.
Earlier this year I witnessed the talent of the band when they worked on Addison Agen’s album in the studio. And as I talked to producer Mark Hornsby about the guys employed at the studio, I wondered out loud if they could a song I would write and turn it into a tune. “Absolutely,” he replied. And it would only take about half an hour start to finish.
To be honest, I was skeptical. So I challenged them to prove it.
And in the second part of a two part series on the group, they did just that.
